Slava was really good, he tailored the tour on the run basing it on what we would like to see. He always had the ship departure time in mind all the time and got us back to the wharf with plenty time to spare. Highly recommended

Ended up we were the only ones on this excursion, which was nice because we were able to spend more time doing what interested us. The Northland Heritage area was a place with stories of the past. Beautiful grounds. A must see to understand the area. Saw beautiful waterfalls and just enjoyed the scenery and gained alot of knowledge of NZ
